Misuse of Bluetooth technology by young men and women is increasing in Saudi Arabia. A recent study found that pornographic material accounted for nearly 70 percent of messages exchanged by teenagers.

“The flash memory of mobile phones taken from teenagers showed 69.7 percent of 1,470 files saved in them were pornographic and 8.6 percent were related to violence,” said Rasheed.

From a study of Saudi women aged 18 to 25:

About 85 percent believed that Bluetooth was safe for communicating with the opposite sex. Ninety-nine percent believed that the device had broken the barrier of social taboo and traditions. About 77 percent of girls admitted that they had used Bluetooth, even inside the Grand Mosque in Makkah; 45 percent used fake names, 33 percent left their e-mail addresses visible and 12 percent exchanged mobile numbers.
